Benefits of Dandelion Root Tea:

Fights Diabetes

Dandelion root tea and juice help people with diabetes by stimulating the production of insulin from the pancreas and keeping blood sugar levels low. If our pancreas doesn’t produce proper amounts of insulin, or if our cells can’t properly process insulin, it results in diabetes. Because the glucose isn’t properly utilized, it accumulates in the bloodstream and results in high blood glucose or sugar levels.

Kills Cancer Cells

Tea dandelion acts on cancer cells in such a way that they decompose in 48 hours. Scientists have discovered that the root of the dandelion does “better” than chemotherapy since “kills” completely only a cells that are infected with cancer. It was found that the root of dandelion effectively “kills” the cells infected with cancer without adverse effects on other cells in the body.

Serves as Diuretic

Dandelion root tea has a natural diuretic effect, allowing your liver to more quickly eliminate toxins. It also helps strengthen the immune system, balance blood sugar levels, relieve heartburn and soothe digestive issues. Because dandelion helps reduce uric acid and stimulates urine production, it’s beneficial for fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs.

    What does the “*” prior to the first two ingredients indicate?

    • Td Anibal

      They mean that you need to click on the source websites to get the how-to. Here’s the instructions for roasting dandelion root:
      When the roots have been harvested, cleaned, and chopped, roast them on a
      cookie sheet in a 150 to 200 degree F oven for two to three hours. You
      can also dry them in a dehydrator then roast them at 300 degrees F for
      10 minutes.

        Thank you!!

        • Joe Cleary

          The “*” should also be next to the source!

      • Rawsome Chef Mary

        What’s the benefit of roasting them? I’d prefer to use raw ones to preserve the nutrients if possible.

        • Sharon Buchanan

          I’m with you. Third source at the end has a recipe that uses fresh but mentions the use of dried as well. No difference except in time.

      If allergic to any food you probably have a gut bacteria Inbalance. Try reading gut and psychology syndrome by Dr Natash McBride.

      simple, don’t use it.

  • NoRagHeads

    Many years ago some man at a produce shop told me dandelion cures cancer. This is before any studies I know of.. He must have had inside information or first hand experience.

    Why do I need a cardamon seed (whatever that is)?

    • Jac

      Flavour – it gives a lovely aroma too. Dandelion root tea needs all the help it can get to taste palatable. Try it without anything and you’ soon know why it needs flavours added.

  • Jon Green

    Why the asterisks on the first 2 ingredients, I can’t see an explanation?
